UFC FIGHT NIGHT: Almeida vs Garbrandt Preview and Prediction
Tonight on Fox Sports 1 (UFC Fight Night) we have yet another solid nationally televised card delivered by the UFC. The Main Event Cody Garbrandt vs Thomas Almeida. Both men are undefeated fighters in the Bantamweight division (145 lbs). The Co-Main event features the Featherweight debut of the former 135 lb Bantamweight Champion. Renan Barao. He’s taking on a game and durable opponent in Jeremy Stephens a tough opponent for anyone in the UFC. Now of course this event does not have the glitz and glamour of a pay-per-view event but it does bring intriguing matchups that could change the course of the featherweight division especially.
Currently the division’s champion…that guy Conor McGregor you might have heard of him, has not defended his belt. The winner of Garbrandt vs Almeida could be a future contender once the cob webs are all clear of the Aldo vs Edgar 2 matchup at UFC 200 on July 9th and the division champion’s pursuit of a rematch with Nate Diaz at 170 lbs. Not only does this main event hold weight but the co-main event as well.
With the destruction that was Dillashaw vs Barao 1 and 2, Barao now look’s for a fresh start and a clean slate at a new weight division. I could honestly say that I believe of any fighter in the UFC more doubt surrounds Renan Barao more than any other fighter. How will he look at a new weight coming off of two complete blowout losses to TJ Dillashaw. We will find out tonight. Former Strikeforce Welterweight Champion Tarrec Saffedine takes on Rick Story with the horror story making his return to the octagon after a two-year layoff. All 3 of these fights I will have my eye on tonight. It should be four. Aljamain Sterling vs Bryan Caraway a HUGE fight at 135 lbs that will be taking place on the UFC’s version of Netflix. UFC Fight Pass. While I understand the company is trying to build a new avenue for fight fans to watch fights this fight is far too big to be broadcasted to Fight Pass suscribers. With that all being said here is my predictions for UFC FIGHT NIGHT: Almeida vs Garbrandt
Almeida over Garbrandt
Barao over Stephens
Story over Saffedine
Camozzi over Miranda
Larkin over Masdival
Felder over Burkman
McMann over Eye
Trujillo over Rinaldi
Sterling over Caraway
